AdventHealth | East Orlando
Emergency Medicine Residency Faculty Clerkship Director
This is a one-month elective for fourth year medical students designed to provide the student with exposure to the Emergency Medicine specialty. The rotation is completed at AdventHeath East Orlando, a busy emergency department that serves a diverse population in the greater Orlando area. The student will function at the level of a sub-intern and will work closely with the attending physicians and residents in the emergency department. The student is expected to see patients independently (unless critically ill) and will be expected to be primarily responsible for these patients while in the ED. Students are expected to complete their history and exam, assist in the plan of care for these patients, as well as re-evaluating the patients and helping make decisions about disposition. The student is expected to complete procedures during the rotation including intubations, chest tubes, laceration repairs and other common ED procedures.
